Agricultural District Open Enrollment

September is agricultural district open enrollment month in Erie County.  It is your once-a-year opportunity to apply, at no cost, to join the state-certified agricultural district that 40 family farms on Grand Island joined in 2016.

Adding your property to an agricultural district can provide significant right-to-farm protections that are contained in NYS Agriculture & Markets Law Article 25AA.  The NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets will defend you if they determine that anyone including government agencies are unreasonably restricting farming operations on your property.

Please CONTACT US if you would like to learn more about the many landowner benefits  of this program, or about a property tax reductions through an agricultural assessment on qualifying property.
